I attended the FAB meeting in Sioux Falls on Saturday and became a new member of the club. It was a good time and great to see so many people show up for a meeting to support their club and cycling in general. I guess now I have a dual membership going between the Lane Hogs and FAB. My opinion is you can never belong to too many bike organizations.
Sunday I was feeling the need to get out and get some fresh air so I decided to give a little snow/ice biking a try. Looking back I should have went for a walk instead. My hats off to you good people that do it everyday, but it's not for me. The temperature was a brisk 7 degrees which does not bother me a bit. The problem I have is the ice and just overall traction. I tried riding on the snow,I tried hitting all the clear spots but always felt like I was a heartbeat away from a bone shattering crash. It might not have helped that I got a good look at the kErnEl's wrist on Saturday. Will I still ride during the winter? Oh yeah, I'm just going to stick to times with I can keep the rubber on dry ground.
